05 Apr The 4th edition of the Zermatt Summit will be held on June 20 & 21 2013. This year’s theme is “Business & NGOs: Building partnerships of winners”.
Civil Society and Business in a constructive debate!
Business and governments achieve sustainability in a fast changing global environment? What can social entrepreneurship bring to social change? How and where can civil society and private sector be partners to address challenges? Business ethics, online activism, social media, sustainability, accountability, transparency are some of the questions and topics that will be raised during these 2 days.
Christopher Wassermann, President of the Zermatt Summit Foundation, commented,
“Our mission is to bring together actors and partners for the purpose of humanizing the process of globalization and formulating practical recommendations”.
Over 200 participants from over 18 countries are expected to join this 4th edition to foster their ideas and challenge their point of views in a strategically oriented, quieter and productive dialogue.
As a non-partisan independent platform able to bring together the different players and interested parties, the Zermatt Summit will provide an holistic approach to the topics discussed, emphasising well-structured brainstorming sessions, genuine interaction and avoiding formal speeches, thus ensuring significant “take home value” for the participants.
